Bigger and more secure: new features for Azure Cosmos DB for MongoDB
During Microsoft Ignite 2022, we announced new, generally available (GA) features in Azure Cosmos DB for MongoDB that enhance security, auditability, and document size flexibility.
- 🔒 Role based access control (RBAC) allows you to authorize your data requests with a fine-grained, collection-level role-based permission model to improve access control, security, and auditability of your database account data.
- 📄 16MB documents raises the current document size limit from 2MB to 16MB to provide developers with additional flexibility in certain new application development and migration cases.
How to get started?
Option 1. Azure Portal
Option 2. Programmatically
RBAC and 16MB documents can be enabled using account capabilities. The ‘EnableMongoRoleBasedAccessControl’ capability for RBAC and ‘EnableMongo16MBDocumentSupport’ capability for 16MB documents can be added to your account using native Azure tools to enable these features.
You’re invited to join me at the Expert Meet-up: Scale with Azure Cosmos DB session at Ignite, Oct. 12, 3:00PM PT/6:00PM ET, to learn more about our new features. I’ll also be discussing these features on Azure Cosmos DB Live TV this Friday, October 14th at 10am PT/1pm ET.
